Free. Family Friendly. Every Thursday night this summer in Downtown Decorah!
Join for an evening of music on Washington Street with Clare Doyle. This Lawn Chair Night is sponsored by Mabe’s Pizza, celebrating 70 years of business! This evening’s entertainment will additionally include a pizza box assembly completion to help celebrate Mabe’s anniversary. Can you put together a pizza box faster than past Mabe’s employees??
After years living in New Orleans, emerging singer and songwriter Clare Doyle returned to her hometown of Saint Paul, MN. She has taken the stage as a fresh Americana act. A lifelong singer, she began songwriting during quarantine and performing in early 2022. Clare draws on a range of influences to write candidly about loving, losing, hurting, and making a hot mess of things.
Lawn Chair Night has been a program of Downtown Decorah Betterment for more than 25 years. It’s now made possible by DDBA in partnership with Visit Decorah Tourism and Impact Coffee, along with generous contributions from top sponsor AJ Realty and more than 10 supporting sponsors. This free, public event features both local and regional talent. Attendees are encouraged to bring a chair and their toe tappin’ shoes. In 2023, three performances will take place at the Courthouse and ten will be on Washington Street. For the Washington Street shows, attendees are encouraged to purchase a beverage at Impact Coffee, our event partner.
In the event of rain, the Courthouse events will be cancelled or moved to a different location and the Washington Street events will be moved inside Impact Coffee. Rain announcements will be made on Facebook’s Visit Decorah page and the Downtown Decorah Betterment page.
